About Levetto

Nothing says comfort quite like a hearty pasta or a saucy slice of pizza. Levetto Pizza and Pasta Bar is just that. With 6 operating locations in Toronto, Levetto is rapidly growing in size and popularity. They offer real Italian comfort food, ranging from freshly made in house-made pastas to hand-tossed Roman pizzas. In a city with a budding and diverse culinary scene, Levetto’s premise is simple – its unpretentious classic Italian food that speaks for itself. At Levetto, you’ll find high quality dishes at an exceptional price in a comfy and casual atmosphere.

Levetto Challenge

Levetto is a fast-casual restaurant but their previous workforce management system was everything but that. It was inefficient and slow. With over 130 employees, it was difficult to update employee records and there’s nothing worse than being charged for a service that you are not using. Levetto’s previous provider would still charge them a fee for inactive employees. They may have had 30 active employees that were getting paid and 10 inactive but their previous provider would still charge for 40 employees.

With Levetto’s previous method of payroll, owner Sammi Nguyen still had to process data manually. Payroll calculations, such as statutory holidays, would take her more than 2.5 hours to manually calculate out and enter into payroll. As meticulous as Sammi is, manual calculations and data transfers are often prone to human error. Adding miscellaneous earnings and deductions would also take forever. They had to input each employee individually. Can you imagine how long it would take to manually process payroll for 136 employees?

Sammi Nguyen, Owner

Managers also have the ability to have complete control of the workforce. Sammi notes that “the system really adds accountability back to the managers when they’re managing their employee hours .” Managers now have the ability to approve and make changes to hours in real time. They no longer have to be stuck in their offices trying to deal with the headache of administrative work during lunch or dinner rushes. Their time is better spent on the floor; where they can revel in the excitement of the dining room and spend more time with their staff and customers. When reports come back to Sammi, she can do an instant high level overview of each store, instead of contacting each restaurant individually or playing phone or email tag with managers. With a quick audit and spot check, Sammi is able to run payroll with just one click.
